Re: FCS TRADITIONS

Nice article in HERO Sports FCS Traditions. Includes a summary on UD. https://herosports.com/fcs-football-best-traditions-bzbz/ The UD band marching under the West stands while playing the fight song could be added to such traditions. I hope they will continue through the new concourse this fall. I...

Re: Paid athletes?

If paying college athletes is on the horizon (as seems likely), some questions are begging for answers: Where does the money come from? Probably not a huge issue for the Power 5, but murky for those below that level. Even the enhanced educational benefits ( computers, study abroad programs etc.) cos...

Re: JMU picked to win CAA 2021 fall season

That's it, Cluck. Harker is gone; that pr*ck Scott Douglass is gone; Scarlett and the so called "seat licenses" are gone. We now have a prez, a head trustee and a highly competent A.D. that all value UD sports. A number of our programs are showing good signs of improvement. As E.D. used to say, "ey...

Re: Hartford going to Division III

Hartford was DIII, at least in the 1960s, so they have some relationships with similar schools. Doubtful that they took this action without knowing their eventual conference tie-in.

Re: The Inevitable KC Thread

Keeler does, indeed, have an impressive record at the FCS level. Why has he never gotten an offer to move up to a higher level where winning is so important that minor character flaws (and sometimes even major ones) are brushed aside in hiring head coaches? One would think he would be a prime candid...

Re: Awesome Spring Season!

For me, the spring football season was a success the minute the Villanova game ended. Everything else was icing on the cake ( and much appreciated). I suspected the Hens would not do well yesterday, having played an away game on Sunday and then having to travel again for a Saturday game. Still, we n...

Re: Game Thread: Sacred Heart

Disappointed in the "game day atmosphere". No cheerleaders. No pep band -- just that constant noise being piped in. I miss real football days/nights.

Re: Game Thread: Villanova

Given how much criticism has been leveled at UD for poor clock management, I think Villanova did a poor job of that in the last few minutes of the game. Yes, they used timeouts -- but let a lot of time go off the clock otherwise. UD defense did a good job of not making things easy for them in that r...

Re: Mens Basketball recruiting 21'

This could play out in several different ways, including having Anderson and Allen decide to go elsewhere (either now or later). I agree that Painter, if I were him, might want to stay around. Like him, I sat on the bench for two years in college, but would have loved another season to play once I w...

Re: Mens Basketball recruiting 21'

The NCAA has already granted another season of eligibility for 2020 spring and fall semester athletes. Voting today on whether to extend that to winter 2021 athletes. There are lots of recruitment implications either way (i.e., could Painter get another year?). Stay tuned. Understood and sounds pos...
